Trying to obtain smooth, full coverage. We always get some kind of banding or have issues when we try to do big blocks of color. We are looking to find a stock that could run through xante Cl30 easy, be heavy weight, AND allow for smoother coverage.
Banding is often caused by light shock to the drums, caused when the printer is left open too long. This may cause permanent drum sensitivity that will not go away until you instal new drums. You may also find that the banding goes away after you get into a longer run, if it is just the "parked" position of the drums giving you a bad "first copy"

there is what is called a etb electron static transfer belt in this system if that is what you are referring to then it will be a big cost to six. but if the etb belt ids warn then that might be why it's life was so short
The reason for banding on the long panels (especially with solid coverage) is the high content of dissolved air in the ink. Dissolved air causes a gradual nozzle drop-out that cannot be stopped unless you do the head cleaning in the middle of the print. Unfortunately you cannot force HP9000 to do the automatic head cleaning in the middle, it can do it only at the end. Manual head cleaning is possible but it takes such a long time that it shows as stripe on a print, and the productivity suffers. Even the OEM HP ink is full of air inside. Our company did a lot of research in this area and we came up with a special ink packaging technique that ensures the ink is 100% free of air. People who tried printing with our ink can easily print 50-foot panels without any nozzle drop-outs or color shift. If you want more info please call us at 1-905-820-8833, www.solventcartridges.com
We also produce portable print head recovery devices and solutions for solvent printer recovery after long periods of inactivity.

Buxie, first off you have voided your warrenty, secondly
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of the page at even intervals: • Clean the inside of the printer. See “Cleaning the Inside of the Printer” on page 5.7. After cleaning the inside of the printer, if you still have the same problems, install a new toner cartridge of the problem color. See “Replacing Toner Cartridges” on page 5.3. • Parts of the printer may have toner on them. If the defects occur on the back of the page, the problem will likely correct itself after a few more pages. • The fusing assembly may be damaged. Contact a service representative.
If horizontally aligned color or black streaks or smears appear: • A toner cartridge may be installed improperly. Remove the toner cartridge and reinsert. • A toner cartridge may be defective. Install a new toner cartridge. • If the problem persists, the printer may require repair. Contact a service representative.
SXPRESS- It is normal to have to replace it after that because the starter cartridges are rated for 1500 pages but that is at only 5% page coverage and most people print alot higher coverage than that, and the replacements cover 2000 pages again @ 5% page Coverage
"Carrier stall" Error and the Carrier Slams in the Printer ID:ENUS12078 If the printer carrier is slamming into the side of the printer, please try the following:
Disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
Open the front cover of the printer where the cartridges are located.
Look for two black bands that span from left to right (they should have one serrated side and one smooth side). Just above the black bands there is a transparent strip; this strip is called the Encoder strip.
Flick this strip lightly with your finger to make sure that it is running smoothly from left to right. You may need to do this two or three times. CAUTION: Do not pull the strip!
Close the front cover of the printer and reconnect the power supply.
If the problem persists, you may need to contact Lexmark Technical Support.
have u used this printer quite a bit....? if so the following may be
the problem and I just did run across this recently in a printer we had
in the shop....I recently read in one of my technical magazines that
there may be a design flaw in the placement of the laser scanners and
the openings that protect them....it seems that excess toner dust can
readily get in to scanner area and specifically inside the scanner
assembly and accumalate on the scanner glass and lens. Just cleaning
through the opening in the back of the printer will not eliminate the
issue. Machine will have to be disassembled, scanner removed and opened
and the glass/lens cleaned with a q-tip....the placement of the fan
(behind cartridges, lower right) seems to speed this process up and it
usually becomes first notable with the magenta cartridge, seeing as it
is at the bottom of the printer closest to the fan. Hope this helps..
Make sure the drums are properly seated in their cradels, and if posible, avoid designing with white small text in heavy solid areas that are made up of process colours. For reverse type in a black background, use spot color black rather than rich black. Other than than printing on a not as heavy card, that is about all you can do.
